Latest Release of New STN Enhances Search History and Expands Database Coverage

10. April 2017

A new, more concise format and the ability to select individual queries lets you customize the content of exported search histories to improve recordkeeping and review efficiency with more focused records of search activity.

Two additional databases are now available in new STN. CBNB provides global coverage of news affecting the chemistry industry, and RAPRA expands coverage of plastics, rubber and polymers in journals, books and other non-patent literature. Also, legal status information is now present in INPADOC, helping you quickly ascertain whether patents are in force, have been abandoned, or have expired or changed ownership.

Export support is extended to allow search results in all new STN databases to be exported to Microsoft Excel® and XML, increasing your ability to export results in the format that best fits your workflow and search environment.
